One hundred percent of Summit Prep students pass the California High School Exit Exam and 96 percent go on to a…More four-year college. Some of the more distinct "non-negotiable" principles are a perfect college acceptance record, a heterogeneous student body that doesn't "track" students on separate tracks and the random lottery system.
Summit Prep was featured in the acclaimed movie "Waiting for Superman," in which the movie tracks five students through their educational journey, one of which is a Summit High attendee. Each grade level is limited to 100 students and the maximum classroom size is 25. Each student has a dedicated mentor, who mentors a maximum of 18 students and meets with each for 10 minutes a day and a two-hour session once a week. Mentors develop Personalized Learning Plans (PLP) with each student to stay on track to get accepted to college.
